As much as the battle for a team’s fifteenth roster spot can generate buzz, Yi Jianlian’s surprising decision to reportedly ask the Los Angeles Lakers to release him from their roster made waves late on Sunday night.

To discuss what the move means for Thomas Robinson and Metta World Peace’s chances of making the roster, and the team’s makeup moving forward, hosts Anthony Irwin and Harrison Faigen were joined by Gary Kester from Silver Screen and Roll in the latest episode of Locked on Lakers.

Also in today’s episode: Harrison and Anthony have a show-long battle to see who can make the worst Yi pun, Harrison gives his latest #HarrisonsHotTake, and the guys announce how viewers can get in on the takes as well.
